Basic but BOMB: Overstuffed Bell peppers

Overstuffed Bell peppers

3 Fresh whole green, yellow or red bell pepper
Ground beef or Turkey
Zatarian’s Dirty Rice Mix
1 white onion diced
2 tsp of minced garlic
2 cans of Rotel
2 tsp of olive oil
1 1/2 cups of water
Shredded cheese(s) of your choice

*Pre heat oven to 360 degrees

  1. First, remove all insides from the Bell peppers. (Once cleaned and prepared, bell peppers can be sliced in half or stuffed Whole.)
  2. Combine olive oil, turkey/beef, garlic, and onion in a pot on medium. Cook until meat is browned.
  3. Add Rotel.
  4. Add Zatarian’s Dirty Rice Mix and water to the browned meat mixture. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Allowing the rice to simmer for 20-30 mins ( or until Rice is tender to your preference)
  5. Layer the bottom of the serving dish with the rice mixture and stuff each pepper. Top with cheese and cover with foil. (TIP: spray the foil with cooking spray so that your cheese doesn’t create the classic delivery Pizza fail 😒). Bake on 360 for 30 mins or until Bell peppers are tender to your preference. Allow peppers to cool and settle for about 15 mins and serve.
